His wife Ethel Elizabeth Nee Green was born at Winkfield Berkshire in Dec. 1889 and died at   Winkfield in 1967 having spent all of her life in and around Windsor. Apparently she delivered milk from a horse and cart there when she was about 14.


 ;D

Except when she was in London (1891), Wolverhampton (1900), and Colchester (1901)

I should also like to be able to know more about Leonard's  family who were:

Percy b.1896
George Henery (sp?) b. 1895
Eva 1893
Walley 1880
Ernest b. 1876
George b. 1874
Ada b.1873
An uncle told me that aunt Ada used run tea rooms or a tea shop in Eton Hight Street 'about 5 doors down from Windsor bridge'. How can I find out more?
Thomas James b.1872 Baptised at Clewer.

Just bringing this forward

Looking at the 1911 index, Wally, Eva and Leonard are living together in (New) Windsor.

Wally then marries in 1914 in Christchurch, Hampshire (not going to mention names etc) and it looks as if he and his wife have 2 daughters (1915 and 1921).

According to a tree on ancestry (which also has a photo) Eva married in Canada, returning to the UK in 1914 and having 5 children

Ada Edith Kirtland married James Edwards on 20th Dec 1903 at St Martins Church, West Drayton (cert on Ancestry)

Ernest Kirtland married Annie Owen on Feb 23 1899 at Walworth All Saints (cert on ancestry)

Thanks for your time Spidermonkey.
Re Marriage cert. No I don't have a copy

Firstly, I am learning not to take things for granted. I never knew too much about  EEK's  nee  G's birth or girlhood but

I said:
Ethel Elizabeth Nee Green was born at Winkfield Berkshire in Dec. 1889 and died at   Winkfield in 1967 having spent all of her life in and around Windsor. Apparently she delivered milk from a horse and cart there when she was about 14.
Talk about petards and hoisting! I took the information from my late mothers family webpage.

Spidermonkey said

I think that would seem to make more sense as (according to an uncle) her first born  son  went to London after living in Windsor. Perhaps he was in London before he came to Windsor.

RE
The bigamous marriage of Richard Redrup to Ada. Who appeared to die in1940
I think that the Ada mentioned here is not my great aunt, or, there certainly is more to this record than meets the eye as I remember visiting her in the mid or late 1950s.
Unless you mean that it was RR who died and Ada was his widow?

The other info that Spidermonkey posted has really got my mind churning. Will post more as it becomes apparent to me.

Edit. Can you inform me if Mary Ethel related to Ethel Elizabeth?

The Ada that died in 1940 is not connected (as far as I can see!) to your family, except for being the wife of RR who bigamously married Mary Ethel.

Mary Ethel Redrup, formerly Tomkins and Green nee Russell was Ethel Elizabeth's mother (I think!)

I am pretty sure that it is. Now that you mention it, I have vague memories of my uncle saying somthing about the name Russell. Have just seen somthing that I did not note down (tut tut) that I think mentioned a Green who was a greengrocer or perhaps builder? who lived at Clewer. If correct, I think it would be a likley connection between the families.

I also found this:
http://www.theroyalwindsorwebsite.com/images01/Localviews/Peascod%20Street/Peascod%20Street%201861%20Clewer.pdf
taken from the 1861 census
It mentions an Elizabeth Green age 46 born at Marlow (1814/5?) who was a dressmaker. I think this could be Ethel Elizabeth's (b. 1889) grandmother.. How does that sound? Any more info on her please?

I believe that the family came from Oxfordshire and Marlow is in that direction.

Not sure where Henry Green and family came - on the only census we have with him so far - 1891 census - he is from Shropshire, Oswstry.  But I had a quick look at earlier censuses and couldn't immediately see a likely candidate. 

Therefore, I would not like to assume that Elizabeth Green is his mother/Ethel's gmother.
